Depends on the generation you're asking. To me, The Cavalier's "Niagra Falls" is infinitely more "iconic" than anything in the 70s or 80s. It's the show that kicked off the "modern" era of DCI (man, that's too many quotation marks...).

Absolutely. Its all experience, time horizon, and so forth, no question about it. I can certainly appreciate why the single year of performing " Niagra Falls" would be considered iconic to some newer fans, but iconic to another person would be the same Corps.. at at different time frame,... utillizing some compo of " Somewhere/ I'm Always Chasing Rainbows " no less than17 YEARS ( perhaps more ) in competiitive competition. Its all experience, time horizon, and so forth, as mentioned.

The OP used the word legacy, so I resisted the temptation to mention The Cadets' (Aw, hell, Garfield) Rocky Point Holiday (82 and 83). 83 was the year the East finally took it all, so for me it's kind of an anthem of the East. But anyway, there it is.

Boston's - Conquest

27th's - Danny Boy

SCV - Bottle Dance

Yes, a Boston boy putting 27th right next to us. Well, right below us anyways.

I, like a few others, am connecting the iconic song with a particular Drum Corp as opposed to listing the music on it's own merit.

Just 3 is too hard - I'll have to go with a much longer list

27th Lancers "Danny Boy"

Boston "Conquest"

Cadets "West Side Story" or "Cadillac of the Skies"

Vanguard "Send in the Clowns" or "Music of the Night"

Cavaliers "Somewhere"

Scouts "Malaguena" or "You'll Never Walk Alone"

Blue Devils "Channel One Suite" or "When a Man Loves a Woman"

Bluecoats "Autumn Leaves"

Any of those give me goosebumps

When I think iconic songs, these are the ones that come to mind for me:

Blue Devils: when a man loves a woman

Spirit of Atlanta: Georgia on my mind

Jersey surf: pure imagination

"Pure Imagination" is one of the greatest songs ever written.
